About Us

The Deer Lakes Aquatic Club was founded in 1999 to promote fitness, self-motivation skills, sportsmanship, and prepare the local youth for competitive swimming. Deer Lakes Aquatic Club (DLAC) is a member of Allegheny Mountain Swimming, and all swimmers are registered with USA Swimming.

We offer a guided age-group youth program for children ages 5 and up. From the beginner to the most competitive and skilled swimmer, DLAC offers instruction for everyone. 

The club offers many practice groups.  Beginner bronze, bronze, silver, jr. gold, gold, dragon, middle school club, and high school conditioning. At each level, the goals and objectives are specific and directed toward meeting the needs of the swimmer. Each child will progress at his/her own rate. The coaching staff recognizes this fact by making team assignments based on a swimmer's physical, mental, and emotional level of development.  Please see the Parent Handbook for more detailed information.

We successfully provide year round instruction to anyone! From curious 5 year olds who love the water to avid swimmers striving to attain their personal bests. Every swimmer benefits greatly from the excellence of our first rate coaching staff. Visit the Deer Lakes High School swimming pool if you’d like to see our coaches and swimmers train in person.

Club members practice at the Deer Lakes High School pool.   Appropriate swimming attire and swim goggles are required.

Our club participates in AMS sanctioned swim meets.  There are meets for every age and ablility!  

DLAC is managed by a volunteer board of directors.
